Two allegedly connected "one-pot" methamphetamine production sites were located on Tuesday night by Sheriff's Office officials, Cpl. Chris Peedin said.

The two sites were at Spring Creek Drive and Emmaus Church Road, Peedin said.

The State Bureau of Investigation was involved with the investigation and cleanup, the corporal said.

More information would be released later today, the corporal said.

So-called "one-pot" or "shake 'n bake" methamphetamine is cooked in one container using a much more simplified setup than traditional meth manufacture, Peedin said.

The simplified operation is highly dangerous, however, as it is often performed in plastic containers that are prone to rupture and shoot flames, law enforcement has said.
